You should definitely make a stop here if you like old cars. These cars have been restored to showroom quality or near showroom quality. Very nice cars and several that were previously owned by some famous names from that era.

Good range of Packards. The Tour Guide was excellent and was willing to answer questions and to discuss various aspects of the cars on display.

This museum is small and packed with vintage cars produced by Packard and Studebaker. If you are a car buff, don't miss this one.
